LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / November 25, 2019 / Construction of Fullerton's city wide fiber optic network is in full swing. The network will be one of the USA's largest privately funded Open Access Networks passing each and every home and business in Fullerton.

SiFi Networks is revolutionizing the American market in its creation of an open access network which is privately funded, enabling residents and businesses a choice of Internet Service Providers from the outset.

"Our team has worked tirelessly to bring together a class of exceptional partners to deliver this network. Our Internet Service Providers, GigabitNow and Ting are renowned in the industry for their competitive pricing and diligent customer service" commented Ben Bawtree-Jobson, CEO at SiFi Networks.

"We are delighted to commence the construction of the Fullerton FiberCity™ network and to continue to deliver FiberCities™ throughout the USA" added Bawtree-Jobson.

The network will not only benefit the City of Fullerton, but it also offers Service Providers, whether that be Internet Service Providers or other Providers the opportunity to access these markets without the large capital expenditure required to build a network.

"What is unique about our network is that it's built for all applications from day one, enabling reputable Service Providers access to the network without having to build separate networks themselves - this reduces disruption to the city and lowers costs long term for all Service Providers" said Bawtree-Jobson.

The City of Fullerton will be able to utilize the network to enable Smart City applications, increase economic development and attract new businesses to the City.

"There is a plethora of Smart City options available now that we have the infrastructure to enable them. The Fullerton FiberCity™ network will not only provide our residents and businesses with the opportunity to access fiber Internet but the City the opportunity to really examine which Smart City applications can benefit Fullerton" commented Mayor Silva.

Fullerton is the first of SiFi Networks' FiberCities™ however, 2020 will see construction commence in multiple other cities across the USA.
